The title of this blog made complete sense the other day when I was in my slump and feeling like a lost lemon. If that doesn't tell you what this blog is going to be about, let me help. I am completely lost sometimes. I can't imagine anyone can relate; am I right? I can bet I am wrong: completely wrong.
My ideas are always changing when I write things down and I can honestly say that this isn't what I expected from this thoughtful enthusiastic post. I start out with one idea and it usually takes me a million different places. One of those places is to describe exactly what I am feeling, but I want to stray away from that for just a moment.
Depression is a real thing and it affects so many individuals that it is hard to fathom. I can't help but wonder what I can do to help other people cross the invisible barrier between happiness and distraughtness. Yes, it is true that some people have to turn to medicine in order to help subside the pains and aches of daily life. Yes, medicine saves lives. I have always thought it would be easier to take that path, but I am a determined individual. I do not struggle as much as other people nor do I think I will in the immediate future, but I want to be able to make a difference in people's lives today. I want to be able to help people who do not think that there is hope left.
So, that comes back to the purpose of this blog. It is going to be not only my daily thoughts (or every other day thoughts, let's get real), but it will also be me sharing with all of you, products and techniques that really have turned my life around for the better. Let's face it, there isn't one product or technique that always fixes it. Sometimes I have to use multiple things or several outlets to get my life on a happier and more positive note, but there are always bridges to cross and I know I can cross them.
Join me on this never-ending journey, or don't. Maybe you don't struggle like others do, maybe you struggle more. I'm not one to judge other people's experiences. I have had my own, and I am tired of hiding behind a label. It's time to rip that bandage off.
